Please Don't Cry You Have Swag
Hot Mulligan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I missed you when I thought we shared some interests
Old songs and games we′d share
You're not who lived in my head
The afterglow started fading when I left

You said it wouldn′t make a
Difference whether we could be together or not
But if you wanna talk about the things you did
Well, I'll be here and I can handle it
So come back strong or not at all
It's up to you to fix your faults

Okay
You think I matter less than politics
When all I want is fresh paint
Before we ever would′ve talked like this
At a loss, a bloodstain
Ruined fabric that you used to wear
A promenade, slow pace
As we realize we′re going to different places
But if you wanna talk about the things you did
I won't be there you won′t grow out of it
The cord's restrung, the feeling′s gone
It's all your fault, I′m moving on

Hey
You said it wouldn't make a difference
Whether we can be together or not
Stay home, stay home
I wanted to keep you but feel it's likely
You don′t share my resolve (hey)
I guess it doesn′t make a difference
Whether we can stand each other or not
Stay home, stay home
You could call it courtesy that
I tried to keep you here for this long (hey)
I guess it doesn't fucking matter if we ever see each other or not




Stay home, stay home
Stay home, stay home

Overall Meaning

The song "Please Don't Cry You Have Swag" by Hot Mulligan is about a relationship that has ended due to a lack of shared interests and goals. The singer misses the person they were with, "You're not who lived in my head," suggesting that their expectations of the person did not meet the reality of the relationship. The chorus confronts the idea that the other person doesn't care about being together anymore and offers a resolution to the situation: "It's up to you to fix your faults."


The second verse moves on to discuss how the relationship fell apart. The singer compares their feeling of loss to a "bloodstain" and "ruined fabric," highlighting the damage that has been done. Despite this, the singer offers to listen to the other person talk about their actions, showing a willingness to communicate and work through the issues. However, in the end, the singer decides to move on because they feel the other person doesn't share their resolve to make things work.

Figured I would give my thoughts on the matter, why not give my rendition as well. All the ( ) are from my point of view on hers, until again when it switches, then it's the opposite.

I missed you when I thought we shared some interests (We always did,)
Old songs and games we'd share (didn't we?)
You're not who lived in my head (How wasn't I?)
The afterglow started fading when I left (I wish you hadn't, I miss you.)

You said it wouldn't make a difference whether we could be together or not (Was the distance too much sometimes?)

But if you wanna talk about the things you did (I know I should have been there more.)
Well I'll be here and I can handle it (But you never asked either.)
So come back strong or not at all (I did my best.)
It's up to you to fix your faults (I tried but I was still always there.)

Okay
You think I matter less than politics (Not at all.)
When all I want (Don't say it.)
Is fresh paint (That's not us.)
Before we ever would've talked like this (You didn't give me a choice.)
At a loss (Only me.)
A bloodstain (One I'll never see.)
Ruined fabric that you used to wear (I still do.)
A promenade, slow pace (Don't fade.)
As we realize we're going to different places (No, I can't accept this.)

But if you wanna talk about the things you did (I don't know what I did wrong.)
I won't be there you won't grow out of it (Grow out of what?)
The cords restrung, the feelings gone (I'm sorry, what's happening?)
It's all your fault, I'm moving on (Why?)

Hey
You said it wouldn't make a difference
Whether we can be together or not (I would never say that, ever!)

[Now the ( ) are from her side.]

Stay home, Stay home!
I wanted to keep you but feel it's likely
You don't share my resolve (I've found someone new.)
(Hey)
I guess it doesn't make a difference whether we can stand each other or not (I can't be with you anymore.)
Stay home, Stay home
You could call it courtesy that
I tried to keep you here for this long (Don't pity me I made this choice.)
(Hey)
I guess it doesn't fucking matter if we ever see each other or not (I'm not coming back. Sorry.)
Stay home, Stay home
Stay home, Stay home

My mom who passed away a day after my 14th birthday loved this song. We went to their concert, and after they finished performing the You'll Be Fine album, they played this song. It was her ABSOLUTE favorite of theirs. Every time I hear this song I think about her. I'm so glad we got to see them in concert before she passed, it created a wholesome memory for me.
